Welcome to #InspireAfricaProject! Welcome to the Ember months. A period that many people blame for all their challenges in life. A period of mad rush in preparation for ostentatious show in the village. Well I want to remind us all that we have spent a total of 302 days, 7, 248 hours, and 434, 880 minutes already in 2016! The question is, how far have you gone with your resolutions and strategies for this year? What steps have you taken in your business, career, academic pursuit and future aspirations that will make this year different from the past?
Claiming heaven and earth at the beginning of every month is good, but every month is the same; it’s what you do with it that determines your rating at the end of the day! I gave my self the target of writing two books this year, and I succeeded in writing three. In fact, I’m in chapter two of the fourth book that will be published in early 2017 right now! How did I do it? I prayed of course, but I did not sit in a corner to be claiming prophecies. I laboured day and night! I literally wrote from morning to midnight yesterday.
Let me show you what you would have achieved by now if you took practical steps from the first day of January. If you started saving N1,000 every day from January 1st, by now you will have about N302,000 in your account. The person that started saving N5,000 daily will have N1,510,000 in the bank by now. If you started saving N10,000 weekly from the first week of January, by now you will have about N430,000 in your bank account.
If you started reading one book a week from the first week of January, by now, you would have read about 43 books! Just imagine the shift that will take place in your mind if you read 43 books on business, career, success, faith, prayer, relationship, finance or any other area that appeals to you. Since wealth creation in the 21st century is driven by knowledge, it means the more you read and research, the more you develop your self, and you will definitely have an edge over your contemporaries!
If you started reading three chapters of the Bible from the first day of January 2016, by now you would have read 906 chapters. You would have read from Genesis to Habakkuk chapter 3 this morning! Just imagine how ruggedized your will be by now if you downloaded 906 chapters of the Bible into your spirit.
By now you will not be looking for prophetic declarations on social media to claim and shout a very long ameeeeeeeen! By now you will not be hunting for mantle, back to sender oil, my enemy must die water, poison killing black stone, and a powerful man of God who will prophecy into your life so that you will become a billionaire in one week!
If you started that new building I shared with you in the series I did in January 2016, by now, am sure you would have roofed it, or even completed it. The greatest demon in Africa is our belief that there is an external force that will take over our assignments. We like talking than doing. Some people have been talking about their big dreams since 1995, yet they have not taken any step to make it happen.
Our challenge is the belief that one day, all our troubles and challenges will expire, and that’s why some people that claim to be ministers of God and prophets are milking Africans dry. Otherwise, the people that uses their brain and know the importance of taking responsibility for their lives will not be buying a roll of magic water for N60,000 monthly in order to become an instant billionaire!
The person that refuses to take responsibility for his life will definitely die as a liability! God gave you brian to think and come up with creative ingenuity that can help humanity and and make you rich, when last did you engage in creative thinking? Anyone who refuses to think, will definitely stink!
Dear friend, God is not going to bless you, He has blessed you with every spiritual blessing in heavenly places, but the blessing is looking for your ideas, strategies and actions to manifest in a tangible form!
That’s why God said that; “Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the path of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night. He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither, and whatever he does shall prosper.” Psalm 1:1-3.
Did you see the phrase, WHATEVER HE DOES SHALL PROSPER in that scripture? Your prosperity in 2016 is no longer in the hands of God, He released it long time ago, but it cannot manifest in the physical realm until you take practical steps! You are already blessed, but it is an intangible blessing that needs your initiative to manifest.
When some ministers say you don’t have to work to be rich, and that all you need is a powerful declaration from a powerful man if God, I understand where they are coming from. Because of their calling, people sow seeds and pay tithes to them, what about you? Are you a man of God too? I believe in favour but it needs a channel called labour to be translated into tangible wealth. In 63 days time, this year will expire forever, the question is, what are your plans between now and December? You can still achieve great things this year if you will start right now.
Bradley Whitford beautifully put it this way, “Infuse your life with action. Don’t wait for it to happen. Make it happen. Make your own future. Make your own hope. Make your own love. And whatever your beliefs, honor your Creator, not by passively waiting for grace to come down from upon high, but by doing what you can to make grace happen… yourself, right now, right down here on Earth.” Wisdom is profitable to direct!
